Who are the most romantic writers in the world?

Love and romance may not be the main genres of literature, but they surely helped define it. Even before the first book was ever published, people have been singing songs of love and reciting epic poetry for the lovers of the past. In the entire timeline of literature itself, love and romance are the main themes for a huge part of that space. And while today’s genres have grown in numbers to include modern ones like science fiction and fantasy, romance is still a flourishing genre with some authors making a name for themselves the same way Shakespeare did with his tragedies. Just who are the most romantic writers in the world in terms of writing literature about love? John Eilerman St. Louis.

What makes these characters and their situations come to life is Austen’s mastery of interspersing societal elements into the plot. She is often known for her unique female characters that break tradition and social norms. John Eilerman St. Louis.
